Keep Your Home Beautiful: Helpful Tips for Pet Owners

 

We know you love your pet but we also know you love that beautiful sectional you’ve been eying for months now. Pets and furniture tend to have an odd relationship, where one accidentally destroys the other. However, that doesn’t have to happen! We have some tips to save you future headaches from your four-legged family member.

Burnham Leather

  • Always use stain-resistant fabrics. No matter what the cost, it is always worth it. Leather, microfiber; these are your new best friends. Leather is always an excellent choice because it’s super easy to clean. If you’re worried about your cat or dog scratching your leather, distressed leather is your best bet. That way you can get that vintage look and your pets will only add to the beauty of it. Synthetic fibers like Ultrasuede & other microfibers have advantages over leather because they’re tightly woven to resist damage and they often come in patterns that hide blemishes.

Drake Dining Room Collection

  • Accessorize with your pet in mind. Pick a color that closely matches your pet as a neutral base then accessorize with colorful accent pieces! Always consider a furniture piece that closely matches your pets’ color to hide any shedding from view. But remember a lighter color could result in more visible stains. But just because your options in color can be limited doesn’t mean your choice in accent pieces and accessories has to be!

 

 

 


Charleston Bay Bedroom Set

 

  • Protect your bed. If you like your pets to cuddle with you in your bed, you know there can be accidents. Use a thick pad for your mattress and neutral-colored, cotton bedsheets that can hide shedding and other stains between laundry days. A duvet cover adds a nice touch. If you have any accent pillows, get them in a bright pattern that could hide any unsightly flaws.


Durham Cocktail Table

  • Double up on storage pieces. Storage products are not only a great way to store things in but can double as a place for your pet to lounge around on. Grab a durable, yet stylish table that can also store anything you need! Ottomans and other storage units work well and come in a variety of colors to add a unique flavor to the room. Give your pets a little playroom so they stay off your couch!

 

 

 

 

2nd Annual Red Chair Event

2nd Annual Red Chair Event

Once again, Value City Furniture is proud to partner with the American Red Cross to help raise money during National Preparedness Month.

To show our support, we’ve taken our iconic American Signature club chair, and created a Red Chair! We’ve been creating a pink chair for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure for 7 years, and we’re proud to be able to show the same kind of support to the American Red Cross by having our 2nd Annual Red Chair Event. It works much like our Pink Chair Event. Fans, followers and customers can enter for a chance to win the chair by either donating online (click here to donate now!), or by visiting any of our locations. All proceeds go to the American Red Cross.

Last year our fans, associates and customers raised close to $25,000, with all proceeds going to the American Red Cross.

More About National Preparedness Month

National Preparedness Month is a part of a governmental effort to strengthen the United States preparedness capabilities. The national preparedness architecture encompasses prevention, protection, response, and recovery efforts to prepare the United States for all hazards – whether terrorist attack or natural disaster.

Since September 11th, 2001, the US Government has taken steps to encourage all citizens to make their own survival preparations. September was chosen as National Preparedness Month, as the tragedies of September 11th, 2001 highlighted to the nation the importance of being prepared.

Healing Wounds

Healing Wounds

Petty Officer Second Class (PO2) Christopher Turpin proudly served in the U.S. Navy for 10 years. While serving overseas, he was injured. Unable to return to the field, Turpin was honorably discharged and returned home to Rocky Mount, North Carolina. As you could imagine, he and his family were in need of furniture.

Welcoming a Hero Home

Welcoming a Hero Home

Everyone here at Value City Furniture was proud to partner with Operation Homefront this summer to give over $333,000 worth of furniture to our servicemen and women, as well as their families. They sacrifice so much for us. The very least we could do is give them a comfortable place to come home to after spending months overseas serving our country, which is why we were very excited to meet Greg.

After the Storm

After the Storm

In the Spring of 2012, deadly tornadoes cut a devastating swath through the tri-state area of Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana. Over 30 were killed. And hundreds of homes destroyed. During times like these, when people are faced with the worst, we see their best. Communities band together, sharing a common cause: to help one another back on their feet.
